Aliens: Gateway Station matte painting

leading from

Aliens gateway station matte painting. (TCF, 1986) This is the actual gateway station matte art from the Academy Award-winning film Aliens. The matte painting was created by award-winning visual effects supervisor Robert Skotak and is accomplished as a hand painting on photo card and dry mounted to keep it flat. The star field has been recreated and back mounted to approximate the final shot seen in the film. The shot appears at the beginning of the film after Ripley’s shuttle craft is found floating in space. (
